javascript calendar to select year only.

Can we use calendar to select only - Year. And no month-date should be selectable .

I am using below calendar which allows me to select date-month-year.

But i want it to be fix for - "Nov" as a month and Year can be selectable.

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
			firstDay : 1,
			inputField : '${}:input1',
			button : '${}:input1-trigger',
			align : 'Br',			
			singleClick : false,
			useISO8601WeekNumbers : false,
			ifFormat : '%m/%Y'
                                    if( Date.prototype.__msh_oldSetFullYear == null ) {
  Date.prototype.__msh_oldSetFullYear = Date.prototype.setFullYear;

please tell me how it could be configure to achieve this ?

There's no configuration to be done here, the calendars simply do not support that. The date/time fields do not support it either, because the data being stored is, well, a date, which means you have to give it a day, month and year. They simply are not designed for just storing month and year.

You could try to bodge the existing popup with custom javascript, but I doubt it'll be simple, and you'll still have to think about how you store and retreive the data - my instinct would be to fix on a specific day of the month (e.g. the 7th) and always use that, while hiding it from the user.

Personally, I'd forget this approach, it's complex, messy, probably won't do what you want and exposes you to a nightmare during upgrade, let alone the initial coding.

I would write a custom field that only stores month and year, with an appropriate calender popup.
